~ Press release issued by Page Alliance for Community Action
Page Alliance for Community Action has received a grant totaling $30,000 as part of the No Kid Hungry campaign facilitated by the nonprofit organization Share Our Strength.
PACA will partner with Page County Healthy Families, Page County Public Schools Nutritional Services, Page County Sheriff’s Office and Virginia Cooperative Extension to provide weekly “porch visits” to families in our community.
Through these visits, PACA volunteers will deliver meals, identify resources and services that might be needed by these families. PACA’s Porch Visitors will follow up with parents and children weekly to make sure they are able to access identified services and basic needs/supplies.
This pilot program will run from January through May and address specific issues that are impacting families in Page County, especially during the COVID pandemic.
No Kid Hungry is a national campaign run by Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to solve problems of hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. After 25 years of successfully investing in local nonprofits and helping find the best approaches to eradicating poverty and hunger, Share Our Strength launched No Kid Hungry in 2010.
For additional information or you are interested in participating, contact PACA at (540) 742-9386. This program can only serve families with children that live in Page County.
